Sculpture Walk

October 23-28
International Garden
Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus
Preview Event: October 23, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the garden

The artworks featured in the Sculpture Walk were created by students in Casey Schachner’s 3D Art & Design Foundations course on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah.

In this collection of works, students were challenged to use a two-dimensional square piece of aluminum to create a three-dimensional object. This was achieved through cutting the square into multiple facets that cannot be removed but instead folded and shaped in multiple directions creating “sculpture in the round.” The students are studying how point, line, plane and volume all work together to interact with their surroundings. This is further enhanced through the use of surface considerations and, in this case specifically, color. Site visits to specific locations informed design, placement and color choice.

Each aluminum sculpture has been powder-coated in a vibrant color to help preserve the sculpture for years of enjoyment.

Join us on October 23 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. as we kick off the Sculpture Walk at the International Garden. Enjoy a scoop of ice cream while you take a stroll through the garden. Place a bid on your favorite piece through a virtual auction which runs the length of the exhibition ending on Oct. 28 at 6 p.m.
